STORY OF K-POP

Remembering the comfort women who could have been my sister. The history of comfort women should never be forgotten.

Japan, which had established a modern imperial state and dreamed of aggression on the continent, faced an economic crisis in 1929 and entered a full-scale war system to overcome it. The Manchurian Incident in 1931 and the Sino-Japanese War in 1937 started an invasion of the continent, and in 1941, a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor and provocation of the Pacific War led to World War II.

After the establishment of Manchukuo in 1932, Japan had already permitted the management of comfort stations for the Japanese military in Manchuria, and in 1932, the Japanese Navy installed and managed comfort stations in Shanghai. After the Sino-Japanese War, during the occupation of Nanjing in late 1937, the Japanese army massacred civilians and raped women. As international criticism for this arose, the Japanese felt the need to systematically manage the castles of the Japanese military.

As the war escalated and entered a long-term war, the need to stop the spread of rape and sexually transmitted diseases became more urgent. Accordingly, the Japanese government expanded the military comfort station system. The establishment of the military comfort station system also stems from another important purpose of promoting effective military activities, such as boosting the morale of the military. Against this background, the acts of rape within the comfort stations established by the Japanese military dehumanized women as sexual violence against numerous women who were forced to become victims of ‘comfort women’.

The comfort stations were directly established and managed by the military, and were also entrusted to the civilian population. Privately operated comfort stations were protected, supervised and strictly controlled by the military. Life in Japanese military comfort stations was basically controlled according to the ‘comfort station use rules’ established by the military.

The rules stipulated in detail the time spent with the soldiers, the number of soldiers to be dealt with, fees, sexually transmitted diseases, and sanitary conditions. In some cases, the comfort stations for officers and private soldiers were set differently, and depending on the rank of the soldier, private soldiers during the day, sergeants in the evening, and officers at night. Some of the comfort stations used local facilities, and some were built by the military or rented out. The victims mostly lived in comfort stations and were sometimes moved to other units or areas according to the needs of the military.

Victims of ‘comfort women’ had to deal with the soldiers regardless of the rules, and if they refused the soldiers’ demands, they were beaten or even killed. Although it was forbidden to beat military ‘comfort women’ in the regulations, assaults by soldiers and managers were open. In fact, the victims keep the scars of that time and are complaining about the aftereffects of living as ‘comfort women’. (Source: Gyeongnam Provincial Office of Education)
